Matching

Can I withdraw from making a donation if I have already agreed to make one?

It is important that you discuss any concerns you may have about your donation with your DKMS coordinator as early on as possible. When you are identified as a match for a patient, you may withdraw from making a donation at short notice for personal or other reasons. We respect your decision, regardless.

However, if you withdraw shortly before the actual transplant, the doctors will have already started the patient’s preparation phase for the blood stem cell transplant, which leaves the patient in a vulnerable state.
